XEP-0045 <https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html> defines two
`room_config` fields that relate to the password protection of a room:

  <field
       var='muc#roomconfig_passwordprotectedroom'
       type='boolean'
       label='Whether a Password is Required to Enter'/>
  <field
       var='muc#roomconfig_roomsecret'
       type='text-single'
       label='The Room Password'/>

Arguably, setting the room password implies that a user wants the the room
to be password protected.

What is the purpose of having two fields? Should setting the latter imply
that server-sided, the former is switched to 'true'?
